Question:

How can I filter on a lookup field in a dataset?


Answer:

You cannot use the lookup field's name in the filter string, but you can use an OnFilterRecord event handler instead.

Well is there any other alternative to the same?
I suppose, OnFilterRecord will take lot of processing if records are high in number (??)
